Regular four cylinder drivers- We
were asked if offset wheels are allowed. The answer is yes.
However, you must meet the weight percentages in the rules
and the offset on the front & rear must match per side. In
other words, if you have a 2” offset on the RF, the RR needs
to be 2” as well, etc.
Just a reminder: What we have been doing with the
4-Cylinder Enduro cars being allowed to race with our
regular Four Cylinder division will continue through the end
of the season or until further notice. This has been a
success and we’d like to thank all of the Enduro drivers
that gave it a try so far.
If you’re not familiar with this, the Four Cylinder
Enduro cars can compete under the Enduro rules (must meet
Enduro rules) with our regular Four Cylinder division. The
highest finishing Enduro
driver will receive a trophy and each driver that starts the
feature will receive a payout based on where they actually
finish in the feature.
Based on the success, beginning this Sunday, we are
doing the same for the 6/8-Cylinder Enduros, as they can
compete with our regular Factory Stocks. Of course to be
eligible for the highest finishing Enduro car, they must
meet the Enduro rules.

Stocks, click the ‘Payout’ link.

Evergreen Raceway Announces
St. Johns, PA (5/24/2016)-
Drivers and race fans in general have enjoyed the 2016
racing season at Evergreen Raceway thus far. When it was
announced that the speedway was hosting “Independence
Enduros’, its fourth Enduro event of the season, they wasted
no time to help spread the word. The event is slated to take
place rain or shine on Sunday, July 3rd.
Much like the previous Enduros this season, the 4-cylinder
and 6/8-cylinders will take to the 1/3-mile asphalt oval for
100-laps of action and Open Competition cars will showcase
their rides in a 30-lap showdown. New for this event is the
‘Redneck Reverse Enduro’, where drivers will compete for
five laps while driving around the speedway in the proper
direction. Well, with the only exception being that the cars
will be racing in reverse. Regular 4-cylinder and
6/8-cylinder Enduro cars will race in the same event and the
fee to participate in this race is $10. The pay will be
“winner take all” for 10 cars or less starting and if 11 or
more start the winner will receive what first place prize
pays for a regular Enduro event.
